Few IPs in modern history have contributed such a bountiful harvest of memes as Spider-Man. While Spider-Man Pointing at Spider-Man will always get a lot of play, there is another, unlike all the rest. With the recent spectacular showing of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 at Sony's PlayStation Showcase, a once-in-a-generation opportunity is in the offing.
Fired-up fans like NicholasPas5 on Twitter are hoping developer Insomniac will do the right thing and give us the gloriously overacted 1994 Shocker x Symbiote Spidey showdown sequel we deserve.
Could you even imagine? What are the chances we see it implemented in some fashion or another? Dare to dream in the comments section below.

What makes it so much better is that of all villains to elicit this reaction, it’s Shocker.
I remember what Insomniac said when they were asked "why didn't you add the Symbiote black suit in SM1?" And they said "the black suit is hugely important to Spider-man's history and we would want to do it right".
After this week I think we now know exactly why.
SHOCCKEEEEERRRRR!!!! YOU CAN'T ESCAPE MEEEE! I'LL CHASE YOU TO THE ENDS OF THE EAAAAARRRRRRTTTTHHHH!!!
He says calmy climbing up the wall
Licensing hell would likely prevent it,but would love the original Spiderman cartoon title song to be snuck in as earworm..."Spiderman,Spiderman, does whatever a Spider can!"😋😂
I remember that episode lol Shocker was scared crapless
I would kill for a cel shaded black suit skin that mimics the Animated Series look as it looked amazing in the show.
So i don't think Harry is Venom in the game now, i think Peter finds Harry and then gets infected, after a boss fight with Miles he ends up at the church loses the suit who then as usual gets passed down to Eddie who will be a new character in the game.
I just hope Peter doesn't lose MJ in this because well with how things are going in the comics right now i can't handle another Peter and MJ split.
Og boy that was hilarious to hear God I hope something like this is in the game lol 😆 😂 🤣
Great I love some 90s cheese bring it on
Watching that showcase, this clip was the very first thing my mind went when Pete was doing his "symbiote voice"
How funny! That would be hilarious if they added that into the game.
@Robocod no real “hell” to go through, Sony have been using the theme in the modern movies (even being adapted for the MCU movies, as well as Spiderverse).
I don't think it would have the same impact this time around, due to Shocker's armored outfit, we won't be able to see the absolute fear in his eyes, UNLESS during their fight, Peter messes Shocker up so bad that he destroys Shocker's headgear, or Peter simply yanks off the headgear to inflict more pain.
I'm not holding my breath, but I would love something like this in the game lol.
Insomniac are my favourite developers as they are constant with very good quality titles.
Can't wait for Spiderman 2 from these guys ❤️
@Brawl4002 Nostalgia at it's finest! I had completely forgotten about this until I watched the clip today.
@WallyWest Seriously, why do they do this to us Peter x MJ fans? As cool as Gwen Stacey and Black Cat are, I will always prefer MJ.
@WallyWest Eh, I hate this version of MJ, so I don't mind if she is sacrificed to be used as tragic plotline for Peter.
@WallyWest Eh it could still end up being harry. In the ultimate spiderman series which this is solely inspired from it was harry I believe. Venom will tear himself away from peter and find his last host he was surviving from. Since harry is so weak he'll take full control of him and become the venom we know. Not to mention it seems they are setting up a game where venom, spidey and miles fight green goblin.
@WallyWest Rather than Eddie, I think it'll be Venom Kraven for the final showdown
@RedRiot193 Harry has never been Venom and the games aren't really inspired by the Ultimate line at all. I would say it has more in line with 616 then Ultimate.
@Arkemyr Going by the first trailer i don't think so. I can very much see Venom getting a spin off game so i think they will stick with Eddie.
@WallyWest Go watch ultimate spiderman. He was venom on there. The change from eddie to harry being venom was done long ago. And go ask the devs then. Their words not mine. When spiderman ps4 was first announced that's what they said. and a lot of designs with the villians keeps up with that. Especially with harry being venom.
@RedRiot193 I'm going by the comics not that abomination of a show and in the comics Harry has never been Venom, taking cues from the worst SM cartoons out there would certainly be interesting. The fact Peter has the black suit suggests he's already been exposed to the substance in Harry's tube implying its no longer with him, in the reveal the reveal trailer that felt very much like Eddie's Venom and not like Mac's or Agent Venom so the moment if and when Eddie shows up its obvious where they're going. Look at Doc Ock they kept him out of marketing and focused on Mister Negative yet as soon as Ock was on screen we all knew who the big bad will be.
@WallyWest Nah it makes no sense to bring eddie in at this point. Harry has been built up for years now. And it's obvious that venom finds his way back to harry, with spidermans powers in tow. Not to mention they most likely want harry and peter to team up against green goblin aka (norman). And if they go a step further mr. negative will cure harry and create the anti-venom. I'm not a fan of anti venom but if done right it might be cool.
